To the Hanson family,
My thoughts and prayers go out to you all. I so much enjoyed working with Wayne while he was in San Antonio. He was smart and a thoughtful and hard worker. I enjoyed him very much! He will be missed.

I met wayne at Dorothy Love when my two aunts went there and I visited them. I enjoy talking to him earlier about his family. He would always wave. He once said hi good looking. He was so nice and I knew from our brief conversations that he was an accomplished man. I could tell by his picture in the paper and obit what he was. So sorry for your loss.

When his thought process would slip he finished his thought with " Ten thousand Swedes, chased thru the weeds, by one Norwegian ". One of our talks he remembered his Grandma Bennet. He said, "Wow, I haven't thought of her for a while". His expression was priceless! Wish I could have talked with him before time took its toll!

Our sincere condolences to the family. The Bible has beautiful and comforting scriptures to help cope with the grief and sadness. I pray that the family will find comfort in the promise for the future at Isaiah 26:19; “Your dead will live. And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life”.
